Now that it’s March and the malls are showcasing their spring lines, it’s hard not to wait impatiently for the snow to melt and the flowers to bloom. Hard not to think about longer days and talking leisurely walks outside. Another sign of spring is March Break since the first day of spring occurs during the time that most Canadian children are enjoying their week off school.
Spring and the upcoming summer are great times to explore your region’s parks and trails. But you need more than sunscreen, water and high-energy snacks to enjoy a family hike. To maximize the fun and keep the cries of, “Are we there yet?” to a minimum, try these suggestions.
The sun is finally shining - it’s time to head out for a walk with the kids and burn off some of that excess winter energy. There are over 100 different natural areas to explore in Calgary ranging from vast grasslands on Nose Hill to mountain-like surroundings along the Douglas Fir Trail, so there are lots of choice for everyone.
